Good thinking Dallas, but if that is the only pro, then i'm not sold, it's very pretty etc, but it seems quite pricy for a shiny heater that won't crack, none of my heaters have cracked - and i live in a very cold place:lol:

AFAIK, the wattages. Back in the day when i bred freshwater fish they were available in 500 and 1000w so a lot neater for the plugs.
Now that is cool, but have they sorted the Stick on problem or is it the same electronics in a metal tube?

Sorry to sound negative :blushing:

Great for a Mantis tank. The smashers are known to attack the little red light and kill them self.

One of the main reasons, i join my Nano on to my main tank.

Hey guys this is old news and tried tried out the azoo years ago and found to be unreliable in comparison to availability then. Maybe things have changed........and this is a better. Does any one tried them in the last 3 years.

I bought a Titanium heater and when my power kept tripping I eventually traced it back to the heater which had small rust holes in - so goodbye to titanium. I bought it just six weeks ago.

I've been running a titanium heat for the the pass 2 years, not a bit problems. It is the "element" only type and is controlled by a OTTO controller.

and I've been using two in 1.8m FW tank, they work great. They also come with water level sensors and external controllers. Paid R220 each at Pet Warehouse in Kenilworth, Cape Town.
